Apple has presented sections of a 132-page internal Samsung document comparing the Galaxy S phone’s flaws with the iPhone, in the Apple v Samsung patent trial in the US.

The document features 126 different issues with Samsung’s smartphone, how it compares to the iPhone and ways it could utilise Apple’s design in future iterations of the Galaxy S .

According to AllThingsD, the 2010 report, translated from Korean,  “evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built-in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward, and in most cases, its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone.”

“In short, the evaluation report makes the case that the Galaxy (identified here as the “S1″) would be better if it behaved more like the iPhone and featured a similar user interface,” AllThingsD reports.

The document does not demonstrate Samsung copied the iPhone, but rather that the Korean tech company believes Apple was producing high quality features.

The Apple and Samsung trial is ongoing, at a San Jose courthouse in California.  Apple seeking US$2.88 billion in damages from Samung for infringing on its patents. Samsung is countersuing these claims. For a day-by-day account of the proceedings, click here.
